Additions and Subtractions
While I wrote a blog that is in response to some of the comments and personal notes I got in relation to my post about taking Bennett out in public and family outings in general, that can wait.
Instead today I'd rather link up to Mission: iPossible, even though it seems to be Eric Olson Week on blogzilly, but that's fine with me. Why not?
Today I added him on our Who We Are page and announced him as an official contributor, and wrote a little bit about what that means over there.
And yes, it is, in fact, true, that thing I mentioned briefly on Facebook. I did take away all meat and dairy products as well as almost all processed foods from my diet. The things I now consume are radically, radically different. Been that way since Friday night.
I'm a bit more hardcore right now than I intend to remain. I will go back to having some bread and pasta at some point, maybe, in the future, as long as it is free of certain things and organic, and I may re-intro some swimmers in moderation, but for now its a complete elimination of all that shit, though I am allowing an occasional flour tortilla right now in a pinch only because of necessity while I wait for a non-flour alternative to show up. Considering what I WAS consuming? I can live with that ONE item still being there...for a short while.
This makes it I guess Day 5? I don't miss anything. I feel...particularly weird. I'm eating a lot of food though, all of it good. I feel leaner in this short of a time frame. I feel more...vibrant? Is that the word I am looking for? Energetic? Definitely more alert and alive. Everything tastes different. It is freaking crazy. Much more on this later, as I learn more about it and learn more about how it is affecting me.
It is good though. It is probably the best thing I have done for my health overall since I stopped smoking. Maybe ever.
